Film Description
A group of friends find out that bird flu is not all it's cracked up to be.

Ok, I honestly know nothing about bird flu, I just thought it made a pretty funny subject for a movie I made up as I went along. Hopefully once it ravages the green earth of all life we'll be able to look back at this movie and appreciate the irony.

Took me a good few hours to make this one as it's my first real movie. Despite that, there's still a few goofs. Just ignore the knife in Bryan's back, and it should make some sense. Had a few crashes too. Remember, kids: SAVE OFTEN!

Enjoy.

** FULL VOICE-OVERS **

Update-a-roonie: Wow, I never once thought I'd get onto anything like the Hot Picks, but that has made my day, if not my week, if not my month. Many thanks to themoviesreview.com for the recommendation, a great review and a kickass site. :D

Update 2: You can now see my follow-up film involving the same cast 'Sandwich Bar' at http://movies.lionhead.com/movie/10833

Hilarious! Very well done voices, great storyline. This is the only comedy so far I've actually laughed at (which is bad since I'm watching them at work...)

Wow, one of the funniest movies I have seen here. Very creative and imaginative, especially with the actually GREAT use of the chicken suit! Great voices as well, nicely done. The music fit each part perfectly too. An overall excellent comedy movie that deserves its place in the top 25 comedy.... wait, it isn't?? WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THOSE CHARTS??? This should be in the top 25 damnit!! Arrrg!!! >=( Even if it once was, it should stay there god damnit! Well, let me do my part in bringing it back up! But seriously, this should be in the top 25, I mean that with full honesty.

Ok now for my obligatory plug: Check out my Inhuman Assassin films sometime (I'm a dork I know xP)

lol if only one person was doing voices they did a good job doing the different ones. The story was solid though work on making the animations look like what there saying (voice sync would help) and theres no reason to add such a long fight seen in your movie when you got a good vocal commentary going. oh ya good work with the music too

Haha, excellent! I'm glad someone got up the nerve to make one of these, people need to stop worrying so much about it. Great to have something to laugh at on the subject. Shweetness!

Hilarious movie, but the 70's-style fight dragged on a bit.

That was the best movie i've ever seen(including real motion pictures.) I loved this movie, especially the dream/flashback that wasted about 2 minutes of the entire movie! 5 stars and 10 smilies!!! :):):):):):):):):):)

An Ok movie but i must say that the kung fu scene was too long and you need to add a lot of sound effects (the original shotgun sound is stupid)so very good dialogue though for the king mecha-bird the fourth

I am familiar with these characters from another series so it's cool to see them again with a brand new look. Keep it up.

Bryan really was a chicken! Now I want to get the bird flu so I can become 'King Mecha-Bird The 5th'. But seriously great story I laughed
throughout the whole film.

Finally, a movie that answers the question: How do you tell if somebody is a bird? Entertaining movie. I ranked it high because all three speaking characters were had funny lines, but also were nicely individualized.

i agree with LoneWolfPictures nothing more to say

Posted on November 21, 2005
- LoneWolfPictures

Plot and Dialogue �?? Not that good, some of the dialogue could have been improved vastly to have a better impact. - 2
Sound �?? Not brilliant, but just right in most parts. - 3
Editing �?? Seemed pretty good to me, and the fight scene was very well done. - 4
Entertainment factor- Was boring for the first 5 minutes as nothing was happening, then the jokes picked up and I was laughing to death. - 4
Originality �?? A movie on bird flu? Not been done as far as I know. - 5

Overall rating - 4, If eveyone can stand to get past the first 5 minutes it becomes a very funny movie worthy of 4 stars.

I like the goatee dude. but i dont think Brian is a bird. i think he's genetically enhanced mutant of some charachter from sesame street with a gazillion tick in his hair that drunk on his intoxicated blood. or whatever. nice comedy.

Just a wonderful work! I find it quite similar to Tarantino's films, with a bit of violence, loads of humour and a suitable music. Also very funny

first movie that actually made me laugh out loud. extremely funny, which is only helped by the superb voice acting. only downside I can see (there always has to be one :p ) was that it was a bit long...

Loved it - laughed out loud. Scots accents were good, too. Kind of shows off the limitations of The Movies with the sets. What would three scots geezers be doing living in a nice suburban American house... But what the hell?

Anyway, guys. The movie was terrific.

Yeah, this was pretty darn funny. Would have given it 5 stars but the music volume was a little to high at the begining of the film which it made it difficult to hear all the dialog. But very much worth watching!

But in this movie i didn't see the bird flu i saw a great Original and new thinking Comedy. you will hit the shining 4 stars button with this movie. and i want more from you.

The movie reminded me of a modern day comedy film. Small laughs through most of the film, with some big laughs at the proper moments. See the full review at http://themoviesreview.com
